Violet Evergarden is a beautiful and moving anime about a former child soldier gradually coming terms with the end of the war, those that she lost and herself by writing letters for others.
Just as the movie was getting ready to premiere an arsonist attacked the studio that made the series, Kyoto Animation, and two dozen people died. Kyoto bravely, somehow, kept going.
The film opens in Japan next week, delayed for a second time due to the lockdown.
In a nice touch, cinema attendees in Japan will be texted a random short story; “Benedict Blue’s Violet,” “Oscar’s Little Angel,” or “Violet Evergarden If”, which makes the experience a little more personal (and might provide a reason to go a second or third time).
There is also a separate spin-off story Violet Evergarden I: Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll which has already been through the cinemas.
